    I think I'll make it half and half. Half for my future and half to spend everyday. That money I earn is a result of my hardwork so how can I enjoy that if I will keep on saving it for my future? Life has no uncertainty. What if I'll die now or the earliest time, how can I enjoy living if I keep on saving? To keep everything balance will make it the right way.

    Future is always uncertain. We never know when we need an extra money. I have seen people dying at hospitals without proper checkups.Because they had no money. So, I would save for future rather than spending all my earnings at once.

    Agrian : I would be on the side of saving money for the future. There are some reasons for it and, I would like to mention two reasons with examples. Naturally, people who save money worry about their future than present life. Some may think of their future payment of house loan. Some other people may think of their retirement life but, all these people save their money for their future happiness. Another reason for the people saving money is that they have more ambitious than non-saving people. However, in our society, people who earn much money do not spend much money in their present life. Because they always seek for their possibility to obtain another chance. For me, with these aspects, the expectation to my future is largely expanding. With these in mind, I strongly support people who save money.

    some people prefer saving money they earn after a hard time working. Some others would rather to spend money for thier needs. Personally, i think we should not have a firm thinking to save all the money we spend. This action would tie us in a hard way. In other words, it is better to balance between to things: Spending but know how to economise our own budgets. Saving money is a good behavior but it is not mean that we have no right to spend money. Let enjoy our lives otherwise we would feel regret what we did not get

    I'll choose to enjoy the money i earn instead of saving it for some time in the future.There a some reason.Such as in aspect economy situation.Government in all countries is down and down,the most distinctive indication of which is the poor consumption.If the every person saved instead consuming, how could it the situation be better? enjoy what you earn cannot only bring you your own happiness but also contribute to the economy of your country,why not?.In one word,i myself choose to spend what i learn and enjoy in time but need save my money for some time in future.
